Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 lb. spicy or sweet Italian sausage (if sausage is in casing, remove)
  • 1 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 batch flatbread dough (recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup grapes, halved
  • 3/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 tsp red hot pepper flakes, optional

Flatbread Dough

  • 3/4 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
  • 3/4 Tbsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Place 9x13 baking pans in the oven as it heats. 
  • Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook while breaking up with a spoon or spatula until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Remove sausage to a bowl and set aside, leaving sausage grease in pan
  • Add sliced onion and salt to pan and cook until soft and just browning, for about 7 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Divide dough into two portions. Wrap one portion in plastic wrap and store in fridge (can keep in fridge for about 7-10 days). On a lightly floured surface, roll the remaining dough portion into a roughly 9x13 inch rectangle. 
  • Once oven is pre-heated remove pan and working quickly, sprinkle a little flour and/or cornmeal onto the pan (this will prevent the dough from sticking) and carefully place the dough rectangle on top.
  • Brush dough rectangle with 1 Tbsp of olive oil. Then sprinkle onions, sausage, grapes, and gorgonzola cheese evenly over the dough.
  • Bake for 9-12 minutes, until crust is golden. Sprinkle with red hot pepper flakes before serving.

Flatbread Dough

  • Mix yeast and water in a large bowl and let rest for 2 minutes.
  • Stir salt, sugar, and extra-virgin olive oil into the mixture.
  • With a wooden spoon, mix the flour into the mixture. 
  • Cover bowl with a kitchen towel and let rest in a warm spot for about 2 hours. Dough should rise during this time. 

Notes

  • Flatbread dough recipe makes enough for two large flatbreads. Double the other flatbread ingredients to make two or wrap half the dough in plastic wrap and store in fridge for 7-10 days.
  • Note that recipe prep time doesn't include 2 hours dough rising time.
  • This flatbread was inspired by the now closed Bouchee restaurant in Boston.
